Irritatingly Underrated Metal

This list just begins, and will grow soon.
Even those that are rated more than 8.6, should've made it to the top 200, or higher that list. It's not only the score, but also the low amount of attention from the metal community to these albums.
Albums are in no particular order.
No, I am not fond of Euro power metal.

1. Anthrax - Among The Living
2. Anthrax - Fistful Of Metal
3. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
4. Biohazard - State Of The World Address
5. Danzig - Danzig 4

Current Top 100, 5 Years On

Back when I joined the site in 2011, I did a customary top 100 album list. Every year since then, when I've looked back at it it's become increasingly unrecognisable from my own tastes. Seeing bands I once listened to daily vanish from my playlists, new bands emerge as favourites, and bands even come and go in my reckonings during that time period (Iced Earth, Alcest, even Pain Of Salvation and more certainly peaked in my listening habits around 2011-12 to slowly vanish into obscurity). Now that it's just gone 5 years since I did that list, I thought I might do an updated list just to see how much my tastes have shifted. Whilst compiling the list, I pretty much worked on gut instinct, which was weird as I found myself almost disregarding albums I know I like whilst promoting albums I'm honestly undecided on - it almost seemed to veer away from album quality at times to embracing a subconscious effect the albums have had. Anyway, here it is, plus some honorable mentions that I was surprised missed out.

1. Dream Theater - Images And Words
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Protest The Hero - Kezia

Post-stonersludge Fun

the "genres" of stoner metal, sludge, and post-metal all seem to bleed/flow together at various times so playing metal bartender, i've cooked up this list of albums those interested in the genres can use as suggestions/starting points. this is just a basic primer with 25 albums... not a definitive list by any stretch. just albums i love. some are landmark releases that helped define the genre... while others are recent releases from cool bands that MS/labels have helped me uncover. Enjoy.

1. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
2. Baroness - Blue Record
3. Down - NOLA
4. High On Fire - Death Is This Communion
5. Kyuss - Blues For The Red Sun
